Planning permission given for Scotland's largest solar project

The Scottish government has granted planning permission for the country's largest solar PV project.

Holyrood’s Energy Consents Unit (ECU) has given consent for its first solar project – Elgin Energy’s plans for a 50MW plant on a former RAF airfield in Moray.

Approximately 200,000 solar PV modules will be deployed at the airfield, which was decommissioned in the 1970s. Since then it has been used for heavy goods vehicle testing and sheep grazing.

The ECU has calculated the plant will generate enough electricity to meet annual demand of just over 10,000 households in Scotland, saving 17,900 tonnes of CO2 per annum over grid mix.
